Army Spouses Carve Out CareersApril 27, 2018 | :

Army spouses bring enormous value to the total Army team — they care for their soldiers at home, manage households during deployments, raise families and provide support and friendship for other spouses.
Many also choose to pursue careers, which can be tricky when the family gets orders to move every few years. These moves can be across the country or even to other parts of the world. The idea of a military spouse having his or her own career ambitions may seem impossible, but according to Nicole Merlino, it is not.
